  • I Appologise for my Non Sense if Govt can Reduce or at least make a fool proof testing of Daily Food and Usage items which are being sold in Rs 30 instead of Rs 20 (Regular Bottle)
    There are many items which are sold on 50% Extra on Retail Written Prices on the Packaging

    Isi trha Medicine Rs 5 ki cost hotti Rs 50 me Store py Jati Rs 100 ki awaam ko Kya ye Khulla Tazaad Nahi
